They're still officially supporting IE6, but now also advising that people upgrade.

With whole countries now recommending to their citizens that they avoid all Microsoft browser versions, and now this upgrade recommendation straight from the source, is it safe to say that web developers can drop support for IE6 as well?

A lot of big companies still use IE6 and IE7, but I'm wondering if this new stance on old IE versions will finally give web devs a leg to stand on in the "how old of a browser should our new product support" argument.
